Thanks for checking out our website! We hope you will learn some things by perusing our site. The best way to get a feel for our community is to come to worship on a Sunday morning. That is the place where most of us are gathered and you will meet a lot of folks and hear what is important to our faith community. We usually meet at 10 a.m. in our chapel (we move to the sanctuary on special occasions). If you will introduce yourself to one of the pastors, we can arrange to meet with you at a convenient time and get to know you and what your needs are! We know that visiting a new church community can be a daunting task but we want to reassure you that we are a friendly, low-key bunch of folks who look forward to greeting you.
You may also want to click on our Weekly Touchstone link to see what is happening in the next few weeks and for any updates on worship; you will also see various upcoming events and outreach activities that you are welcome to participate in. You may also click on our Sunday Podcasts link to hear a sermon or two to get a feel for what is important to us and how we relate to the Bible.
If you come to worship…you may either park in the small Walnut lot or the larger Los Robles lot. Sometimes the University club lot is open and if it is you may park there as well (enter on Oakland). Come on in and you will find someone to greet you and hand you a bulletin for worship. We sing, pray, welcome children, hear great music, and celebrate being together as God’s people during our worship hour. There is always a time especially for children when they are invited up to the steps to hear a brief message from one of the pastors. After that the youngest ones up through Kindergarten are escorted to the nursery by a parent and the nursery providers. The older children and youth have something for them as well – a class, or activity or something designed especially with them in mind. After worship we usually linger and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea together and spend some time in fellowship. Sometimes we have an event or a meeting after church – all the details will be listed in the Touchstone link each week.
